A CHALLENGING ENVIRONMENT
Providing educational opportunities to a broad range of individuals, enriching students’ learning experience and improving the overall quality of education are three of the most important issues facing educators today. Effectively addressing such issues, however, has become a significant challenge as educational institutions are faced with a shortage of qualified instructors and strained budgets. Interactive Video Communication: More than Distance Learning
Video communication is providing educators with the tools they need to provide a better education in the 21st century. Students expect technology and mobility, and successful educational institutions are turning to video communication to meet their needs. Video communication provides:
• Increased Access — At all levels, TANDBERG video communication is being used to bring students in smaller schools or remote areas equitable access to learning opportunities. Sharing teachers and classes allows schools to meet the needs of their students while lowering costs. In addition, students have increased access to instructors via virtual office hours. • Collaboration Opportunities — Students are able to collaborate with students across town or across the globe on presentations, book reviews, class projects, research initiatives and more. Not only do they have the advantage of the collaboration, but exposure to new cultures and places.
